mellymell: (celeborn)
I started work on Celeborn Thursday. But I quickly found out that I'm just not going to be able to drape this thing on my busty dress form (bustier than I am, for sure). I don't yet have a compression apparatus for my own chest, so I couldn't even really take accurate measurements to draft something. But, that didn't stop me from playing. I mocked up what I think is a good place to start for the front of the inner robe down to the waist seam.

Friday, I promptly ordered a compression shirt. ;)

I got an immediate shipping notice & it's coming priority from Miami. So maybe it will be here tomorrow or Tuesday and I can check my work and move forward on that.

In the meantime, I pulled out my Arwen Angel gown & I'm going to pin it to the dress form tomorrow and work on these in tandem. I've got it all cut out from way back in 2008 or 09 when I last worked on it and the lining is done. It's all the freaking handwork I have left to do on it that's going to keep me so busy on that one. Celeborn has a little couching to do, but not a million seed and bugle beads on his edges!

I think if I break both these projects up into tiny pieces and stick to a schedule, I might make it to an event where needles and thread are a precautionary measure, not necesities for finishing a costume. I will not be sewing on the riverboat at ALEP2! ;)
